“The quality of the singing and the music direction is superb. This piece is a delightful surprise for the whole audience.”
Jennifer Bell Company takes a new approach to music performance.
Working with both professional singers and anyone who can make noise with their mouth, director-composer Jenny Bell
specialises in a-cappella song cycles.
The shows reveal extraordinary moments in everyday life, finding the big themes in small details.
Choral performance naturally carries an ethos of the immeasurable value and importance of each of us individually, singing together. Jenny's concerts and compositions explore the interplay between Self and Other and Self as Other.
JBC ensemble The Beautiful Machine has performed both live and on film. Performances are often played out in unusual locations, through which the themes resonate.
They have filled working office blocks with song, set a promenade oratorio in the Houses of Parliament, filmed on location, and taken the work into theatrical contexts, such as Bristol Proms and at Mayfest 2013.
Jennifer Bell Company is supported by Theatre Bristol & Arts Council England.
